5.25" LCD display showing system vitals?
Posted on 2011-02-15
I'm building a tower server for a client of mine which will be installed in a standalone environment (no keyboard or mouse or display attached).
I'd like them to be able to see some of the "vitals" for the system by looking at a display built into the case. I'm looking for some kind of OEM-like LCD display that slots into a couple of the 5.25" ports of the case and shows CPU%, memory usage, temperature, and maybe some status indicators for other system vitals.
I imagine something like this would connect to the computer via one of the internal USB headers on the motherboard, and would need to come with some drivers or software for configuring it that would run when the computer is turned on.
Anybody know of anything like that? I've found lots of fan controllers... but that isn't really right. I'm looking for something that will show relevant information about the system, not just the speed of the fans - and I certainly don't want to give them control over the fan speeds.
